The Stars are Right! (Yarrrn)

Ia! Ia! Ahem...
And now, we learn about knitting when the stars are right. These are my Cthulhu slippers. Yes, the feet go into the hole in the middle, so it looks like Cthulhu is chomping on my tootsies. Aren't they great? Why have only one Great Cthulhu when you can have two!
And Cthulhu likes yarn.


Here, he is trying to ingest a skein of Supersock in yellows and greens. I saw the yarn and specifically bought it to wear with these slippers. The colors are perfect. Now, if only I can get this mean monstrosity from the great beyond to give it back...

Oh, OK. He found something he likes even better: the amazing, tentacular blue and green yarn Ah Xia! sent me a while ago. It looks like it has its very own tentacles! I'm not sure what I'll make out of it yet, but I'm absolutely certain it will be non-Euclidean, a gibbering hand-knit terror blaspheming among the stars.

Hi Batty! I love the slippers--I love even more they are eating the Cthulhu yarn...I think it has grown more tentacles since it left my clutches...
